    Hi

    I'm new in Mac and HDSLR editing, but very interest to work with HD edit.
    So decided to purchase a PC or iMac/MacBookPro for mainly HDSLR (h.246) and Lightroom/PS/Apetuare photo editing.

    My question is will the NEW iMac
    -2.7GHz Quad-Core Intel Core i5
    -AMD Radeon HD 6770M with 512MB

    Fast enought for the above mention work ?
    Kinda budget, so MacBookPro is my 2nd option.

    or MacBookPro
    2.0GHz quad-core Intel Core i7
    Intel HD Graphics 3000
    AMD Radeon HD 6490M with 256MB GDDR5

    Which to go ?
    Btw HD 6770M with 512MB / HD 6490M with 256MB GDDR5
    or last (AMD Radeon HD 6970M with 1GB )

    How abt 13inch 2.7GHz dual-core
    Intel Core i7 4GB 1333MHz
    Intel HD Graphics 3000

    please advice.
    Thanks

    They'll all do the work...

    As usual, more power the better, but even the lowest will handle it fine.

    My Basic 13inch i5 uses Aperture 3 with no probs.

    Also go to Apples Apps store you can buy Aperture 3 for £ 46 pounds Bargain.

    My concern is with or without GPU ?
    13-inch: 2.7 GHz (Intel HD Graphics 3000)
    15-inch: 2.0 GHz (Intel HD Graphics 3000 AMD Radeon HD 6490M with 256MB GDDR5)
    15-inch: 2.2 GHz (Intel HD Graphics 3000 AMD Radeon HD 6750M with 1GB GDDR5)

    or Just add RAM to 8GB will do ?
    Main for H.246 dslr video footage and photo edit ?

    Because i'm new to Mac.
    Please advice.
